Ester Curini is a self taught artist born in Italy and based in the USA, Ester creates the most amazing acrylic paintings of animals. Her work she says is to capture the unique energy, essence and spirit of each creature she paints. Ester was a finalist in the 2012 International Artists Magazine's wildlife competition, this is the same magazine I was proud to have also been a finalist in 2011 with my painting "Inspiration" in their floral and still life competition.
I hope you enjoy Ester's work and pop over to her website to see more of her paintings.

As a self taught artist myself, I often think that our work sometimes is less "rigid", as we do not adhere to strict teachings.
